Back in the day, those were seen as superb team / precision kites.
I'd go with Roy about the price. What an enthousiast would want to give.
remember: amateurs built the ark ..
professionals built the Titanic.

PLEASE......NO TAILS ....

Hi,

I'm new here (registered this morning...)

The sail on the picture is a Reactor Microlite. The smaller kite in the Reactor series. Dedicated to nearly no wond to indoor flight.

Hope that helps !
